Community Tasting Notes 6

    April 28, 2019 - Not quite as much love as my 2016 note. Pop and pour. Consistent with before, this was a translucent ruby, no bricking, cork in perfect shape and this could go for a long while. Reticent nose. On the palate, not as much fruit as before and bracing acidity was dominant at first. After some time open and in the glass it balanced out somewhat, but still acid-dominant. Better toward the end, nose and fruit on palate woke up a bit. Rather one dimensional. Maybe open for an hour before drinking. I believe it’s just in an awkward state and with more time some secondary characteristics will develop and make this more interesting.

    December 18, 2017 - Dark ruby, slight exotic note (singular--this was pretty shy)--not much going on here but a little something to hang your hat on. Good bones, a nice easy drink (opened the day before?), good concentration after the Santenay, but not much else going on. Nice though. Celestino dinner.

    June 24, 2017 - PopnPour, tasted over 2 hrs and day 2
    -med ruddy dark red mild bricking
    -moderately fragrant sour cherry spice mild reduction slight green tinge
    -high acidity gives a somewhat harsh backbone that carries through to the finish, med/med- weight sour black cherry with some spice, med tannins; more depth but less focus on day 2 with an almost citrus-like component
    -bears the acid signature of the vintage but not very well balanced at this stage and not optimistic this will ever be great

    October 7, 2016 - Beautiful, light on its feet. Pop and pour. Translucent color. No hint of age. Not a big nose, but persistent medium nose of a bit of orange peel, cherries, bit of nectarine, hint of oak. Nice acidity on the palate, juicy, again light on its feet. Cherries, not particularly complex. I love this 07-08 simplicity, just very enjoyable. Long juicy finish. Nose opened up after about 45 mins. Glad I have another, try again in a few years. A delightful middleweight example of the appellation. No hurry, but no need to wait.

    February 6, 2012 - Pop and pour. This had massive tannins on the palate - blind I would have guessed it a nebbiolo. Kept a glass and a half for night two. Night 2: Wow this is a different wine. Much more expressive on both the nose and palate. Nice and well-balanced. Very elegant. Give it a lot of air next time.
